Equality and Diversity

Everyone is always welcome

We welcome ALL children and their families at Centre 56 and children enjoy learning about our own and other people's cultures and beliefs. We teach children to respect all cultures, religions, faiths and beliefs.


Food and snacks

Children are provided with a healthy and balanced range of meals and snacks. The children also grow their own vegetables in our allotment area, to learn about where food comes from and to encourage healthy choices. All dietary, religious and cultural requirements will be respected.
